2020 Outback Limited XT, 2014 Forester, 2007 Outback Limited
I bought the limited XT Turbo in Late December. This is my 3rd Outback (and 7th Subaru if you count my wife's and daughters), and it's the first time I didn't compromise and go cheap. Yes, it hurt to write that check for a few thousand more than I wanted to spend, but that was a one time event and in the past. Now, whenever I go to pass someone on a hill and the turbo kicks in, I smile a little bit. That feeling will occur over and over again for the next 10 years or more, based on past history.Yes you do want to spend 1800 more and get worse gas mileage. The turbo power is a luxury...
Yes turbo is seductive. Give in to your desires. You Only Live Once. Get the car you want, not the one you need. You can afford it...
